Michael Jai White gets back into the crime-fighting business when an Italian mob kills his brother, fills orphanages with heroin, and floods the street with bad malt liquor.
Weeks prior to the theatrical release of "Black Dynamite", Apparition presented the official trailer for the blaxploitation throwback. More than two minutes long, the trailer serves as an introduction to the 1970s African-American action legend and features the reasons why he gets back to clean up the streets from crime.
Black Dynamite is a former CIA agent who is out for revenge. When an Italian mob known as The Man kills his brother, pumps heroin into local orphanages and floods streets with adulterated malt liquor, he steps out to the plate and fights the baddie all the way from the blood-soaked city streets to the hallowed halls of the Honky House.
This action comedy film comes from Scott Sanders. The "Thick as Thieves" helmer directs the movie as well as co-writes the script along with Michael Jai White, who plays the titular character, and Byron Minns, who portrays Bullhorn. It has been premiered at Sundance Film Festival as part of the Park City at Midnight program and will be released in limited U.S. theaters on October 16.
